As a communcaitions specialist, I take words and create a personality, a vision, an emotion, a brand. I can insert personality into a resume, vision into a corporate document, emotion into online content, and brand identity into a website.
I have experience in logo design, branding, marketing, digital communications, social media, article writing, and editing.
Also, I'm an expert at creating viral online content. Not only can I create the content, but I also can promote it. Fun fact, I once wrote a BuzzFeed article that received over 2.9 million views.

I am no stranger to SEO-centric articles that promote a product, service and/or idea with a humorous undertone to boot. I have worked for local magazines doing both general editorial work about the community as well as fashion and beauty reviews and press releases; Fortune 500 companies generating marketing copy and promoting the progress of the company within the industry through various social media platforms; and retail organizations doing general sales. To put it bluntly: I know how to sell and to whom, and in such a way that it generates success for all parties involved.
